Online accessibility standards are intended to make learning optimal for all learning; it is about more than legal compliance. However, compliance issues have impacted campuses across the country. In 2017, Syracuse University received an official accessibility complaint from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights that required an extensive remediation of websites and online materials across the institution, including the Libraries. Kate Deibel, Inclusion and Accessibility Librarian will share how she coordinated an extensive remediation of library materials, from managing workflows and processes to developing best practices for ongoing compliance. She will also discuss additional accessibility efforts SU Libraries have underway, including an alternative format service within the Libraries and a software accessibility testing team from all aspects of the Libraries. This hour long webinar will include a presentation and a Q&A session.
